First up is a Harbor Freight Impact gun I've used for the last few years to change tires. Still works great. I splurged and upgraded to something bigger. Comes with 2 batteries so you are never stuck without a charge. $50.



Second is the air compressor I used when I had the miata. I didn't like how long the small cigarette lighter powered air compressors took to work. The ones that hook straight to the battery are much faster but you have to take the time to hook them up. No net time gain there. The big rechargeable ones that are in jump boxes were just too big, remember miata, and didn't seem any faster than the cigarette lighter plugin ones. So I did some searching and found this:



The air hose blew out long ago so mine will come with a Harbor Freight (noticing a trend here?) replacement 1/4 inch hose that is quite a bit longer than the original. I also doubt I have the shoulder strap. But I do have the 2 batteries and the charger which is not in that picture.

Amazon Product Page here. Mostly positive reviews. It worked fine for adding a few pounds to a set of 225/15s quickly. It would not fill up a whole set from 0. Paid $40, yours for $20.

The last set of tire I got for the sentra were Hankook RS2s on close out for $50 a tire. I assumed that would be the last set of tires for that car. But it stubbornly has refused to die and is in need of a new set of tires.

Anyone know of a similar deal going on? Looking for something performancy i.e. not all seasons. In a 215/45/17

Obviously it is still a work in progress...

Not quite a race car but a good daily driver. Expect a discount if you keep me from having to deal with craigslist crazies. smile.gif

Most of you know the car, more than a few of you love the car. Now is your chance, it is for sale. It is probably no longer competitive nationally for the new CS. But will be very competitive regionally. Here you can get a turnkey competitive car that you can run at the next event with no work. Or there is always STR with springs, Ground Control sleeves and wheels.
